Narrator Gabra Zackman engages with this weird, grim novel, a combination of fantasy and mystery. In 1928, the displaced survivors of a seaside community are sent by the U.S. government to live in the desert. Later, the story involves the siblings' visits to relatives who live under the sea, flashbacks to life in the desert camp, accidental magic, and even early Cold War spying. Zackman finds outstanding voices for the characters, especially Aphra Marsh and her brother, Caleb. Further, her superb pacing and intense emotions add to the story's strange and intriguing atmosphere. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2019]
